If you see an outrageous quote "from Ann Romney" floating around that claims she said women shouldn't get equal pay to men because they haven't been in the workforce as long (and other ridiculousness), it's a hoax. It was created by "freewoodpost.com" which claims to be a satire site but is basically a pack of lies.
No fan of Romney here, but let's stick to the facts, please. Spreading this kind of stuff doesn't help anyone.
Well a month and a half of exercise was doing a great job at curbing depressive episodes, but the black dog is back and in force today. It is literally physically painful just being awake and mobile. My body feels like one giant bruise and my mind doesn't feel much better. I can't remember if it was ever this acute in 2001-2002, but I don't think it was.
Fortunately, I have a doctor's appointment later this week anyway; while I'm there I'll ask about Zoloft or something similar. This is no way to live.
PS: Comments closed. Believe me, hugs and well-wishes are normally much appreciated, but right now I don't have the mental bandwidth for them. The only reason I'm making the post at all is in the hopes that other people with depression will know they're not alone.
Just a heads-up that I'm feeling much better tonight; thanks for your patience and well-wishes everyone. I think it was primarily a matter of messed up sleep that triggered the episode, and getting some rest and some food this morning helped considerably. I was also pleased that I had the discipline to do a workout regardless of how meh I felt about it at the time.
